Some things never change. One of those is the relationship between the Detroit Tigers and Lakeland, Florida.
This will be the 77th season the Tigers will train in TigerTown, the longest ongoing relationship between an MLB team and a spring training city. This will also be the 48th straight season the Tigers will play at Joker Marchant Stadium.
